If you operate a commercial business with multiple sites, having scheduled maintenance in place can be a wise move. From firms with several office blocks to retail chains with different branches around the county, a planned programme in place for electrical testing can ensure you keep operating effectively. In the next sections, we’ll explore why this type of maintenance is a smart choice for businesses in the commercial sector.
To provide a premium service, commercial businesses must ensure workflow is smooth and seamless. Selecting planned maintenance is a far better way to avoid unwanted disruptions than opting for reactive maintenance, where expert help must be called in at a moment’s notice. Reactive maintenance doesn’t allow you to plan or prepare when work is carried out, so you can find your business without essential electrical services like heat, light and power at critical times. Planned maintenance can be booked in at a convenient time when you are less busy, closed or at night, minimising any disruption. With well-planned maintenance, all work can be spread out over time, with 20 percent of your electrical infrastructure tested each year in a five-year cycle.
Every successful business needs to operate economically, and planned maintenance is a cost-effective way of ensuring your sites are always functioning efficiently. It’s also far cheaper than dealing with major problems that have been left unattended to – routine pro-active maintenance has been proven to be around 10 times less costly than reactive maintenance.
Keeping to code
Planned testing will also keep your sites compliant with health and safety inspectors, providing you with recorded evidence of when your electrical safety checks were last performed.
Planned maintenance can identify outdated or damaged electrical components that need replacing, fixing issues before they arise. This process of removing potentially dangerous parts of your system provides a strong preventative method that keeps the people and properties in your sites well protected.
Planned maintenance is key to keeping competitive. It can provide you with the peace of mind of knowing that all your electrical systems are operating at optimum, so your business can perform at its best and build on its success.
